    Why breathability depends upon water repellency...

    Breathable waterproof garments are most likely to get sweaty and wet inside when used in damp or wet conditions. If the outer fabric absorbs water, the garment can lose up to 70% of its breathability. Therefore, the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) on the outer fabric of your jacket must be maintained to ensure comfort. Nikwax Tech Wash® will revitalise the DWR and therefore breathability of your garment.

    Use Nikwax  TechWash when your raingear soaks up water...

    Your waterproof clothing and equipment could be soaking up water because the Durable Water Repellency (DWR) has been compromised by dirt, or because it has been cleaned with a conventional laundry detergent. Dirt attracts water and household detergents leave water attracting (hydrophilic) residues, leading to fabric 'wetting out' in wet or damp conditions.
    If your waterproof clothing or equipment  is relatively new, or recently treated with a Nikwax waterproofer, then cleaning with Nikwax Tech Wash® will not only remove contaminants, such as dirt and residues left behind by household detergents, but also revitalise DWR.

    How Nikwax Tech Wash protects and maintains you kit...

    Nikwax Tech Wash® is the market leader; it has been specifically designed and optimised for breathable waterproof fabrics.
    Nikwax Tech Wash® is a highly effective cleaner. Additionally it will revitalise existing Durable Water Repellency (DWR) and revive breathability. It is the safe way to thoroughly clean your waterproof clothing and equipment.
    Application in a washing machine is quick, easy, and ensures that the whole garment is thoroughly cleaned.

    Use Nikwax Tech Wash in a washing machine...

    Use neat Tech Wash® and a sponge, or soft nylon brush, to treat stubborn stains before washing. Remove all non-washable parts. Shake well before use. Follow care label instructions. Do not use detergents.

    • Remove all detergent build up from the detergent dispenser.
    • Place item(s) in washing machine (maximum 2 items).
    • Use 150ml in medium/hard water* areas and 100ml in soft water areas for 1-2 items.
    • Wash according to care label.

    *Faulty taped seams sometimes become detached on old or worn garments. They can be re-stuck using a proprietary clear glue after waterproofing and drying.
